A seamless means for remotely controlling select Sony cameras, the Sony RMTP1BT Bluetooth Remote Commander uses Bluetooth connectivity for adjusting certain camera settings and releasing the camera's shutter within a 5m range. The sleek commander incorporates +/- buttons for adjusting focus, recording, and power/digital zoom functions and has two assignable buttons—AF-ON and C1—that mirror the set functions of the same-named buttons on the camera body. A lock switch prevents accidental settings changes when the remote is not in use.
Additionally, an LED indicator light shows the shutter, recording, or AF status. The device is dust and moisture resistant to suit its use in trying environments.
A high-visibility indicator LED flashes or lights continuously to show shutter, movie recording, and AF status. This is an obvious advantage in situations where the operator does not have direct access to the camera being controlled.
Precise button operation with clear tactile feedback combines with a refined ergonomic design to provide sure, responsive control. The commander itself is designed to be easy to hold and operate, contributing to smooth, error-free operation.
The RMT-P1BT works with the camera's built-in Bluetooth receiver, so no wired connection or add-on receiver is required. Camera connector covers can remain closed for maximum protection against dust and moisture, adding to high overall system reliability.
Bluetooth communication provides reliable remote control even in bright sunlight or when there are obstacles between the commander and camera. Bidirectional communication allows additional functionality that would not be available with a transmit-only device, such as status indication right on the remote.
The RMT-P1BT provides the type of reliable operation that is essential in professional working environments, with solid Bluetooth connectivity and positive, responsive button control. Because communication is wireless rather than optical, full reliability and response are available even in situations where the line of sight is obscured.
Essential camera controls are provided: focus buttons for precise control of even subtle focus changes, a lock switch that prevents accidental operation during transport, movie recording start/stop, and power/digital zoom. There are also two custom buttons that mirror the functions of the C1 and AF-ON buttons on the camera body.
